I know that’s not really how the song goes, but it makes more sense for this area. Lol. Yes, we are back in the Jackson area at Teton park. These past two weeks have been a whirlwind for us. The Bozeman show was good. We really like that town, and the show is a lot of fun. We left there on the Monday, drove all the way here and got ready for our show in Teton Village. It was sooooo hot this past weekend, which is super unusual around here, but the show was good for all the vendors. So that makes it all good. That was our third and final show as promoters for the year, and we are looking ahead to next year.
We are now in our favorite spot, enjoying some quite, and the river nearby. The bison are back in the area, and yesterday morning we went to get some photos. They are in the rut, which is my very favorite time with them. The big bulls are so powerful.
This big guy had just tussled with a sagebrush. The girls love that added touch.
This is going to be another short post. Hopefully after this week, things will slow down for us.
The dogwood prompt this week is Figure to ground. Thankfully, someone in the group posted this article, so I could figure out what that meant. After reading this, I realized that I take some photos using this idea already. This composition is not just for portraits, but wildlife, still life, all kinds of photography.
I would have liked to be a little more creative with this one, but this was about all I could get.
From Clicking to Creating-Something New, Something Blue
The Dogwood challenge this week is Alphabet. Either find objects, or create something that makes a word. This was a new idea for me, and this image came to me as I would walk through the woods where we had been camping. There was such a variety of natural plants, that I knew I could make a word easily. Of course that word needed to coincide with what I was using, so Nature it is.
The feathers are from my feather collection. Whenever I find a beautiful feather, I have to pick it up. I’ve been doing this for years, and so I have a nice little variety. I placed my gray board under a tree, so I could use the natural filtered light. Once I got the letters created, I moved the board around until I was happy with the lighting.
I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.
The color blue. That’s the prompt from 2 Lil Owls this week.
Since I had my feathers out for the previous image, I thought I would get more blue ones together for this photo. I love my blue jay feathers. I only have a few that I picked up in a friends yard in Colorado several years ago. The small blue one, is from a mountain bluebird.
Blue water in the thermal area of Yellowstone. Yes, it really is that blue.
Have you ever created an alphabet image? If yes, what did you do?
We have been in Bozeman, MT. for the Sweet Pea show this past weekend, which was good, then zipped to Jackson yesterday to get ready for our show this weekend. Busy, busy, to say the least. But it’s a good busy.
